Funny article from worst-case scenario about how to jump from rooftop to rooftop.

I know roofjumping isn't what parkour is about!

You must run as fast as possible to attempt a leap of more than a few feet. You will need 40 to 60 ft. of running room to develop enough speed to clear about 10 ft.

hahaha

Most people cannot jump farther than 10 ft., even at a full run.

hahahahaha!  Yea right!  i know for a fact that i can jump 18 feet at full run in long jump.  Plus, if your putting your life on the line, then your gunna jump farther then you think.

btw, is my sig too annoying?

Get with the flow...
